Smart County Master Plan

November 6, 2023

The San Bernardino Council of Governments (SBCOG) is leading a Smart County Master Plan (SCMP) that will provide a roadmap for improving the region’s communications and technology infrastructure to better serve the county’s growing technology needs. The regional approach is meant to share information and break down silos in an effort to serve residents in all sub-regions and jurisdictions.

SBCOG, in coordination with the SBCTA/SBCOG Emerging Technology Ad Hoc Committee and the SBCTA/SBCOG Board, has initiated a Smart County Master Planning process to ensure technology investments are aligned with the overall goals and objectives of the region.

With the overall Master Plan, SBCOG is looking to:

  • Promote Clean and Sustainable Transportation
  • Enhance Traffic Flow and Connectivity
  • Improve Quality of Life through Universal Broadband Access
  • Rewrite the narrative by promoting advancements and celebrating early wins to incentivize living and working in this region of Southern California.

The SCMP is divided into 2 phases, the Early Action Plan and the full Master Plan. The Early Action Plan, which identifies tasks that the region can implement should there be resources available, has been completed.

Now with the completion of the Early Action Plan, staff is moving forward with the development of the full Master Plan which is anticipated to be completed by the end of 2024.
